Mac & Window Doesn't READ External HD
Hello everyone, I'm new to this forums. I have encountered a problem and have been all over google reading on thread and SEAGATE help sites, but not luck. Problem is as follows...
My sisters got a new Seagate 2TB GoFlex and she transferred over pictures and videos from her WINDOWS 7 laptop. Then she connected the HD into her WINDOWS XP desktop, and the drive promoted to register the device. She is not computer sabby and she said all she did was complete a survey. After that she took it back to the laptop, and the laptop would not recognize it. It has a little light that will turn on.. You can hear the HD spinning, then it stops, and the light turns off. No luck, went into the USB ROOT, Drive Management, ect. Things around there. Followed steps that said right click on My Computer and go to Manage and so fourth... No luck... computer doesn't READ it at all. So i brought it over to my house and I have an iMac 27 running Snow Leopard. I connected it, and it won't pick it up.. I checked on Disk Utilities, and no luck. Googled like crazy and this is my last hope.. The one and most important question, "How can I recover all the data that was transferred over to the HD when no computer can read it?"
Any help is greatly appreciated thanks!
